I mean no disrespect. I love Tony Gonzalez. He will always be a Chief and will go down as the greatest tight end in the NFL ever. Which leads me to wonder: Didn’t playing in KC where Tony was the number one receiving threat his whole career cement his Hall of Fame Status? If Tony was playing for another team where he was not the number one option, wouldn’t his career be completely different?
I believe that since Tony was our only passing option for so many years, that the Chiefs help make Tony into a Hall of Fame TE. To evidence this fact, they are stating in Atlanta that he will be asked to block more; and with Roddy White, Michael Turner, and Jerious Norwood on the field, his stats are highly likely to suffer; a fact to which he recently acquiesced.
What do you think?
(By the way I asked these questions to Tony today via the NFL Live Chat on the nfl website. My questions were not posted).
